The Hyde Leadership Charter School is a new school that opened earlier this year. It serves significantly disadvantaged children in the Hunts Point section of the Bronx and accepts all interested students at no cost.
The Hyde Leadership Charter School will offer an after-school music program to students 3-days a week (Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday) 4:00-6:00PM. The program will be offered October to June and will expand each school year as the school grows.
This program, offered in partnership with Roberta Flack, is called "The Roberta Flack School of Music". Roberta is a strong believer in inspiration as a catalyst for learning, and wants to offer the opportunity for young people to experience the magic and creativity that music can offer. Read the Mission Statement.
The Roberta Flack School of Music is funded entirely by private donation. Our fundraising goal to launch this music program and develop it for the next 5 years is $500,000.
If you wish to make a donation to the Roberta Flack School of Music, please make it payable to Hyde Leadership Charter School (for the Roberta Flack School of Music), and send it to:
